High Waisted Shorts and Animal Print Top - Inspiration Monday


#1 - "Out of Africa"
ANIMAL PRINT TOP - Bella D (TJ Maxx)
HIGH WAISTED SHORTS - American Eagle Outfitters
WEDGE SANDALS - Payless Shoes

"Inspiration Monday" - Liv Tyler
Recently, I've been finding these little wadded up tissues around the house.  Usually Pigtails likes to pull all the tissues out of the box and just leave them there in a pile (and I hate wasting them so I shove them back in the box and make Camouflage and I use them!).  So I'm walking around the corner and see my sister, Polka Dots, laughing.  She tells me that Pigtails has learned how to "blow her nose" (which really means making the sound of blowing her nose because the tissues were dry).

Today's challenge was to find something that I could wear for "Inspiration Monday."  I went with some high waisted shorts, though didn't stick with Liv Tyler's nautical theme and wore jungle print (don't forget "Everybody Everywear" tomorrow!).

Anyway, I finally got to picking my 30 pieces for my "30 Day Remix" (if you don't know what that is, check out Kendi's description here).  I decided to name these outfits after movies (last time I did places).  I'm excited to stop shopping (not really, but I need to) and start appreciating my closet!  This is my second remix, and I've noticed I'm getting a little more bold.  Instead of picking solids that can be paired in all sorts of ways together, I've chosen lots of prints and crazy colors.  Hopefully I won't be sorry.


I'm excited about my remix (but of course it's only day 1, so let's just see what happens around day 10 or so).  I'll miss shopping but luckily the girls and I will be busy with summer time activities.  I'm hoping these 30 pieces can easily carry me through the next 30 days, otherwise I'm the one who's going to be blowing my nose into tissues!

I really love your take on Liv's look! PERFECT!

You are going to do so well at the remix! I love all of your picks! I did the remix in the fall, and it was hard but so fun! :)

Good luck with the 30x30 challenge!

I really love your inspiration copy outfit - I kind of like yours better, actually!

My daughter does the same thing with blowing her nose. Wondering when she'll figure out how to REALLY do it. :)

Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

Awesome shorts! I'm digging your take on Liv.

I really wish I'd put more thought into doing the 30x30. Now it's too late!

I love your 30 items, and I can't wait to see the remix results!

By the way, I wore my Thakoon for Target color blocked dress this weekend, and I just realized that I totally should have linked to your take on the styling, because I'm pretty sure I just stole your look, entirely :)

Terri said...

I like your outfit today better than Liv's! Good luck on the summer challenge.
